Mai Khao beach is one of the longest in Phuket. Lots of great 5* hotels with well known names. It is just 15-20min drive from the airport, but don’t worry about the noise - you will not hear the planes even a little. Speaking of...More

We stayed at Sala Phuket Resort which is situated on this 11 km stretch of beach. Very little tourism and nicely isolated which means you are often alone on this beautiful beach. Caution required if you plan on swimming. The beach has no lifeguards and...More

It is not the cleanest beach I have ever been on but it is still beautiful. I believe it is around 12km in length and is just great to stroll or find a spot and enjoy. The waves were quite strong on my visit but...More

This beach is amazing. We went during monsoon season so the ocean is much more turned up and you have to be a pretty strong swimmer if you want to go out there (watch out for the undertoe and riptides). But it is still beautiful....More
